Today is December 15th...and we're having unseasonably warm weather here in Toronto. I hardly feel right posting this drawing of Jett Vector in cold weather gear. I could go out in a fall jacket and, if it weren't slightly damp out, I could mow my lawn.
Fans of Flash Gordon may recognize the name Frigia in my post title. It was the all cold, all snow, all the time planet visited by Flash and Dale. I drew up a blank (naked) template of Jett and printed out multiples of the same body on sheets of paper so that I could draw different costumes on him. This was the first and I had a visit to Frigia in mind when I drew it. Costume design is not something I think I'm all that good at. It certainly helps if I have a story in mind or a costume to work a variation on. In the case of Jett I want to keep his basic shape (big upper body, narrow waist) clear and show as much skin as possible. Or in the case of winter wear...make the clothing skin tight.
Here's hoping it snows for Christmas, at least.
